When my wife was expecting, I found myself suddenly surrounded by expecting couples. Shower invitations poured in and it seemed like there was an event every couple of weeks. Having a limited budget and lots of shower invitations can mean reserving premium gifts for close friends and family and more budget-oriented gifts for coworkers and acquaintances.
Keeping within budget while bringing a cool gift to the shower requires using a bit of creativity. Dr. Seuss books are always a hit and today there are lots of board books that are perfect for babies who love to tear paper. But another idea I recently discovered is creating custom onesies. Makeaonesie.com is a great place to create a custom onesie (or sleeper or romper) for less than $20. They have an intelligent interface where custom onesies can be made and visually rendered in seconds.
I haven’t ordered from them before and I wonder if others can share their experience.
